Democrat Sean Patrick Maloney says his win Tuesday over Republican Nan Hayworth to represent the redrawn 18th Congressional District shows voters wanted their interests to come first...“This was a team effort, and I want this to be a victory for all the middle-class families in the Hudson Valley,” he added, saying creating jobs and improving the economy are the top issues.

[Hayworth] is dangerously inflexible at a time when this country desperately needs compromise. As a result, the Republican congresswoman can’t point to many tangible accomplishments for the district in the past two years. This ought to be a major concern for everyone in the district, regardless of their political affiliation.

...Hayworth’s tenure has been disastrous for the Lower Hudson Valley.  In one key vote after another, Hayworth has stood with the cuts-only, extremist elements of her party to oppose, threaten or delay legislation important to voters in the 18th District — the farm bill; the president’s jobs bill; the transportation bill; the health care reform law (Hayworth pledged time and again to de-fund it); consumer protections; and a host of important budget and fiscal measures — raising the debt ceiling included.

Yet she has favored limiting contraception coverage for employees and voted to defund Planned Parenthood. Mr. Maloney promises to support health care reform, help the middle class and oppose tax cuts for the rich. We recommend Mr. Maloney.

Maloney...emphasized that the budget plan Hayworth supported twice in the House, championed by GOP vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan, would “break the promise of Medicare, end the guarantee of Medicare.” The voucher system that would replace the current Medicare structure would, he charged, cost the average senior an additional $6,400 each year.

“The Hudson Valley voted for change, Maloney said.  “Across four counties on two sides of the Hudson River, in hundreds of schools, firehouses, community centers, in the Democratic vote of a quarter million of our neighbors, the people have settled this debate.  They have closed this campaign.  My friends, tonight we have completed our course.  We’ve done it.  We’ve won this race.  This is your victory.  Tonight, we start putting people first again in the Hudson Valley and in Congress.  And I’m ready to accept this challenge and the responsibility that comes with this new charge.  And with your help, we’ll make this office work again.  We’ll make this country work again for the people who need it working for them.

“The Ryan budget takes a dangerous and cavalier approach to disaster funding,” Maloney said.  “There would be significant reductions in the resources available to FEMA.  And if those cuts were in place right now, FEMA’s ability to bring lifesaving assistance—and very tangible types of assistance like debris removal and assistance to people on the ground to buy diapers and get groceries, and things like their ability to coordinate the National Guard, state and local people who are in the front lines—all of those things would  be reduced significantly.  This is an issue where you see the consequences of Tea Party ideology.”

“Rape is a horrible crime – period,” said Maloney.  “Sadly, this latest attack on women’s health from Tea Party candidate Richard Mourdock isn’t surprising.  I hope that the Congresswoman will join me in rejecting these despicable statements, and will call on Mitt Romney and her Tea Party ticket to withdraw support for this extremist.  Women in the Hudson Valley deserve a Congressperson who will put Hudson Valley women ahead of Tea Party ideology.”
